6:01 am
towards the macarthur maze. they are in the clearing stages now. car hit the sand barrels so we'll let you know what's going on there plus show you a live look at conditions heading into san francisco. in the meantime, back to you guys. >> thank you. it's 6:00. and we begin with a develop story down in daly city. multiple stabbings sending several people to the hospital overnight. kristy seifkin is at a popular bowling alley where the trouble may have started early this morning. she joins us with more. good morning, kristy. >> reporter: good morning to you, frank. when we arrived here at serra bowl in daly city a couple of hours ago, there were several police cars on scene. they have just now left, taking down the crime scene tape. this is all after they received unconfirmed reports that several men were stabbed here overnight. police are not saying much, but we have received reports that four men were stabbed at the bowling alley and then walked over to seton hospital in daly city which is just a few blocks away from where we are now. multiple ambulances were called and the men were taken from
6:02 am
seton to san francisco general hospital. according to serra bowl's website, the alley holds an event every week called monday madness. and this event runs in 1 a.m. that event includes discounted alcohol and there is a bar inside the bowling alley. so it begs the question of if alcohol may have been involved in the incident. now, an officer at the scene that i spoke to earlier said a detective was collecting evidence earlier trying to determine what happened putting the pieces together in this potential crime. but as i said before, no confirmed reports from police right now. still waiting to hear details about the condition of those victims and find out what might have caused the violence in the first place. frank? >> okay, kristy seifkin live in daly city, thanks. one man is dead, three others injured following a rash of overnight shootings in oakland last night. all within just 40 minutes. fatal shooting happened 5799th and ar -- fatal shooting happened at 79th and arthur. no arrest there.

6:04 am
game and police will set up post-game dui checkpoints. also, tailgating parties can only start four hours before kickoff and they will be stopped when the game starts if tailgaters don't go into the game they will be kicked out. >> i just think that okay so you can't buy alcohol during the 4th quarter but if you have been drinking like crazy throughout the entire game until then, what difference does it make? >> it's our believe that we should recommend to the nfl that this game is at least postponed for some period of time. >> reporter: 49ers president and ceo jed york says it wasn't regular fans who caused the problem. he blames it on the people who bought cheap tickets from season ticket holders who didn't care to see that preseason game. in all that night police booked 12 people. the average is one or two a game. now, some other changes you will see here at candlestick
6:05 am
include more visible police presence. they are planning for brighter lights here in the parking lot and season ticketholders who are caught, quote, misbehaving may have their access revoked. so those are some of the changes. they will start this saturday when the 9ers host the houston texans here at candlestick. grace? >> all right. we'll see if it works. stephanie chuang at candlestick thank you. a new setback this morning for bryan stow. doctors are treating the injured giants fan for an infection and fever. his sister talked about it last night on headline news. >> so he had, you know, a couple of steps back the past few days and he has had an infection. >> the family website reports stow has responded to visits from his children. dozens of arrests in san francisco during another protest against bart for a fatal police shooting and the transit system's response.

6:32 am
they had been here all morning. they just left taking down the crime scene tape. we have received initial reports that several men were shot at this bowlingly alley ceara bowling alfully daly city. -- serra bowling alley in daly city. unconfirmed reports of four men being stabbed and walked to seton hospital a few blocks away from where we are now. then they were taken from seton hospital in ambulances to san francisco general hospital to be treated. according to serra bowl's website, the alley holds an event called monday madness weekly until 1 a.m. it includes discounted beer, there is a bar inside the bowling alley. and so that of course begs the question if alcohol was involved in the violence. the bowling alley also has surveillance cameras so hopefully, there is some help for the police to piece together what happened here last night. i spoke to an officer on scene earlier who said there were detectives here earlier this morning gathering evidence.
6:33 am
they have now gone to the daly city police department. they are trying to figure out exactly what happened, how this fight broke out. and actually to get some information about who stabbed the victims and their conditions. we'll certainly provide with you more of those details as we get them. >> piecing together that case. kristy seifkin in daly city, thank you. in oakland, three shootings there in just 40 minutes. one of the victims has died that. man was killed at 79th and arthur just after midnight. no arrests there. two others were shot during a robbery at 38th and foothill around 11:30 last night. and then about 40 minutes later another person was shot at 54th and foothill. no word of a connection between the shootings. in san francisco, 40 people arrested after a protest at the civic center bart station spilled into the streets.

6:35 am
contract. the shortened school year comes after the district agreed to lengthen school days by one hour at three elementary schools. this comes as schools around the state face the threat of a shorter academic year due to midyear budget cuts. if the state doesn't have enough tax revenue by december automatic budget cuts will force some districts to cut the school year by two weeks. classes begin in the mount diablo district a week from today. >> thank you, holly quan with kcbs radio. let's check traffic and weather. we hear there is an accident that just happened. >> this one an overturn. >> overturned car blocking the left lanes. several other cars are also stopped in that area. we are talking about northbound 880 before marina boulevard. this is in san leandro. we have just learned from chp this is a major injury crash. so again we are already seeing pretty good sized backups for this time of the morning. debris is in the road. southbound 880 slowing in the stretch as you make your way
6:36 am
towards san leandro. so again, this is a definite developing hotspot here. we are launching chopper 5. so hopefully we'll bring you some live pictures here very shortly but again there are delays northbound and southbound 880 in that san leandro area. now, our closest camera is near the coliseum north of the accident. past hegenberger everything is good. drive time is growing to 23 minutes northbound 880 between 238 and the maze. coming up, we'll show you a live look at the bay bridge toll plaza where the metering lights are just turned on. lawrence has the forecast. >> sunshine today, also dense fog showing up at the coast. let's head out there now. you can see some of that thick fog and it's compressed down to the surface right out there somewhere. treasure island hiding out there. but it looks like it is going to be a great day as that fog is going to break up and we have a lot of sunshine come our way. watch out, though, traveling near the coast that dense fog continuing this morning. by the afternoon, plenty of sunshine.
6:37 am
these temperatures are going to soar compared to yesterday's highs well above that. a good 13 degrees above that at 94 in concord, 70 and gorgeous in san francisco. back to you guys. >> thank you. like to tailgate? the rules are about to change for 49ers fans in the wake of all the violence at the battle of the bay. stephanie chuang is live with the crackdown coming to candlestick park. >> reporter: good morning. the next time people come here to candlestick park they can expect less drinking and less tailgating if all goes according to plan anyway. the 9ers have announced new rules following saturday night's violence. the cameras caught that violence, fans going at each other, fistfighting during the battle of the bay game. a man was attacked and knocked unconscious in a restroom and two others were shot after the game. everyone is physical his fine now but the violence pushed the 9ers to introduce these new rules. no more alcohol sales in the 4th quarter. tougher enforcement on drunks
6:38 am
at the game. and police will set up post- game dui checkpoints. also, those popular tailgate parties can only start four hours before kickoff and they will be stopped when the game starts. if the tailgaters don't have tickets and don't go into the game, they will be forced out of the park. >> it appeared very early on that the people weren't here to see the game, they were more inclined to engage with other people in the crowds than just to enjoy the game. >> they are just looking for an entertainment and place to go and start trouble. that happens when you can go buy a ticket cheap on the internet because your regular season ticketholder isn't going to be there. >> reporter: some additional changes. brighter lighting in the parking lots, more visible police presence, and season ticketholders caught miss behaving will have their access taken way. these rules start this weekend.
6:39 am
9ers and raiders fans may not be meeting in the bay area for a while. the 9ers are trying to suspend the usual battle of the bay games and the raiders will consider it. >> thank you, stephanie chuang at candlestick with the latest. bryan stow in the meantime his family says prayers for the victims of the violence at candlestick. they say stow has suffered setbacks over the weekend in his recovery from an attack outside dodger stadium in march. he is being treated for infections and a fever. they also say stow has responded, thought, to visits from his children. 6:39 now. a southern california mother under arrest as her baby boy fights for his life. the 7-month-old baby was apparently thrown from an upper floor of a parking garage at a hospital in the city of orange. the 31-year-old mother was arrested after surveillance video showed her driving out of the garage with an empty child seat in her car. fresh fighting has erupted in tripoli this just hours after moammar qaddafi's son

6:42 am
average more sales than other agents. experience, certainly. but maybe it's also because they care about the markets they serve and the neighbors who rely on them. nobody sells more real estate than re/max.

yesterday wound up just in positive territory thanks to a last-minute rally. >> but it's not where you start it's where you finish. >> reporter: that's the only thing that matters, absolutely. >> come 4:30 or 4:00 today. thank you, jason brooks with kcbs and facebook is not even settled in its new menlo park complex yet but they are already talking about getting bigger, expanding. the "mercury news" reports the social network has filed plans to build a second campus in the big city across highway 48 from the 1 million-square-foot complex it bought from sun microsystems. you guys have probably heard, hp is selling the touch pads for 99 bucks and there's also rumors about the ipad 3. >> but try to find one. but when you look at all the tablets it may not matter because they all do the same thing. some have a little more gadgets but here to talk about it cnet editor-at-large brian cooley. we were just chatting off camera. >> there it is. >> that's a great deal.
6:51 am
>> here it is. here's the touch pad that no one cared about when it was $300, $400, $500. now at $100, it's the hottest product in tech. price changes everything. >> that's got to send a message to the people who make these things. >> yes. that's my message this morning. when you see a touch pad if you can find one or any of the other tablets out there, in many ways, 90% of what you will do is done on all tablets. it's kind of universal. it's web, email, things do you on a computer all the time. take a look at some of my favorite functions for even an obsolete tablet. you have a web browser and most of them except for the ipad handle flash websites. that's something that the rest of them all do that an ipad doesn't do. so if you find this hp touch pad it's [ indiscernible ] web browser, email isn't changing. they all do that. >> they don't have a lot of apps. >> there's very few apps for the hp touch pad but how many on your phone or tablet do you use a lot? some people do. your phone is also another
6:52 am
place where you can find apps. it could be a different operating system you have there. also i love tablets for rear seat entertainment. a lot of people spend thousands to put dvd screens in the back seat of the cars. just stick one of these on the head rest. these are great for that. a touch pad at $100 is tremendous for that. kitchen computer. recipes and things? no keyboard you can't get spaghetti sauce in here. this thing will never get gummed up with tomatoes. that's great. another thing to think about for any tablet you can find they are all great photo frames. how many times have you sat there with your camera showing folkspictures? you can transferred them to any tablet >> the big question is how do we get one? >> they are hard to find because they are coming in dribs and drabs, they are still in the channels in the distribution centers. one thing i'm use something the google shopping too so i search
6:53 am
hp touch pad and brings up merchants that they scan. >> my hp decides, hey we might have something here, maybe a lower end tablet? >> no. hp is out of this whole business now. this is a heck of a lesson for the tablet makers that when you change the price you completely change your demand. consumers still see tablets as a luxury goods because they cost hundreds and you don't need it compared to how much you want it. >> for the record you got that hp one -- >> we had this before they came out. this is our lab sample from our review lab. i couldn't find one. i have been looking. i can't find one anywhere. >> we have been looking. >> but don't sweat your tablet. if you can find an inexpensive one they are all great at the general stuff. you don't necessarily have to have the perfect android or ipad. >> thank you, cnet editor-at- large brian cooley. 6:53 now. and a wild triple play. this is in the minor leagues. >> and it's all thanks to one
